New Freedom Borough and Northern Central Railway welcome Smoke on the Rail BBQ Festival, a Kansas City Barbeque Society State Championship paired with a community festival in the heart of New Freedom. Backyard and Master Series teams will fill Marge Goodfellow Park during the last weekend of July and test their pitmaster skills to find out who prepares the best chicken, ribs, pork, and brisket. Steak Cookoff Association cooks and teams will also battle for the best cooked ribeye and ancillary category of anything with crab meat. While the teams compete, the public will enjoy great food, music, vendors, and activities.
Smoke on the Rail BBQ Festival is the event you don’t want to miss.
